colleague, ted poe, a cowboy boot-wearing conservative republican from texas could agree on, you would have said, not much. today we are partners in an issue, however, that makes sense regardless of your politics. ensuring sustainable equitable access of clean water for nearly 800 million women, men and children who don't have it and 2.5 billion without the most basic sanitation services. ted poe and i think that politics should stop with water. that's why today we're introducing the paul simon water for the world act of 2013. since congress passed the paul simon water for the poor act in 2005, the united states has become a global leader in efforts to increase access to clean water and sanitation, developing and implementing some of the most innovative approaches to help those in greatest need. we must not only maintain this progress but work to further refine and focus the efforts at usaid and the department of state by enacting the world act. we are committed because dirty water and lack of sanitation fects all areas of development assistance. especially the case when it comes to women a
you texans call up, because this administration was responsible for the annexation of texas. the tylers have a lot of children. >> it is what kept them apart for a great deal of their married lives. john tyler was constitutionally incapable of being out of public office. he was addicted to it so left her at home to run the family, to run the business, and to continue to manage this incredible group of children they had almost from the very start. >> running their plantation would have been how large an operation? >> one of the issues is a are always on the very edge of solvency, so they never live one place more than 10 years. they are always moving around. they own between 30 and 35 slaves, and they are growing wheat and corn for about 600 acres to 900 acres, and that is between plantations. they then moved to the other side of virginia, so they are continuing to try to figure out a way during these striking economic changes to the country and go into what is going on in 1837, to find a way they can keep their heads above water, and with john tyler gone for so long and so o
